Planting Day with the Sisters

“Planting Day” is one of our favorite things about Fall!  It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to our Summer flowers every year, but wonderful to praise God in new and beautiful parts of His Creation.

 

One of the Sisters shared, “When I look at each little pansy, with its painted face and ‘open arms’, I like to think, ‘when God made that flower, He knew that I would see it and that it would brighten my day today.’  And that thought can help when it seems like the world is full of troubles, because God sees everything and He loves us so much, that not even a little flower is outside His Providence for me.”

 

We hope the beauty of nature at Casa Maria, whether you’re here or just seeing it in photos, will brighten your day, too!

 

 

This year we are experimenting with planting a winter garden in a raised bed, and can’t wait to reap the harvest!
